Lightning Baccarat Quick Facts
- Developed by Evolution Gaming, Lightning Baccarat is the latest table in the "Lightning" series of games
- Random multipliers applied to each card before dealing (up to 8x)
- Multipliers stack for even bigger multiplier payouts
- 20% Lightning Fee added to all bets
How to play Lightning Baccarat
Short Summary: Lightning Baccarat is a traditional game of baccarat with a twist. Before each hand is dealt, random multipliers will be applied to a random number of cards (up to 5). If you win and these cards are in your chosen hand, then your bet is multiplied.
Detailed summary: Evolution Live Gaming's latest game plays much like a normal game of baccarat. There's the Player hand and the Banker's hand - and your goal is to guess which will be closest to nine. There's also the tie option if you are feeling adventurous.
In Lightning Baccarat, the major addition is the inclusion of RNG multipliers. Before each hand is dealt, up to five Lightning Cards will be chosen to receive a random multiplier boost. The multiplier can be any number between 2x and 8x.
If a Lightning Card is in a hand you bet on, then your bet will be multiplied. Multiplier values also stack for even more electric wins. For example, three Lightning Cards are in your hand and they have an 8x multiplier - that's 512x.
To fuel the multiplier prize pot, Evolution Gaming has opted to add a 20% Lightning Fee on all bets. This means that wagers are more expensive to play here than in other rival games.
Lightning Baccarat Strategy
Short Summary: There is no definite Lightning Baccarat strategy, as it is impossible to tell when Lightning Cards will be added. The tie bet seems attractive due to the 5:1 payout but should be avoided at all costs. Stick to the Player which offers the best return.
Detailed Summary: Despite the new multiplier mechanic, Lightning Baccarat will do little to the way you play baccarat. This is because it is impossible to know when Lightning Cards will show up. With this in mind, it's best to follow an optimal baccarat strategy instead. Here are a few general tips:
- The tie bet is still the most dangerous. While it seems attractive to try and land that 5:1 win, it's going to happen once in a blue moon.
- Betting on the Player exclusively will result in the best RTP
- If you want to play a standard game of baccarat, then choose another table. You can't opt out of the Lightning Fee here.
If you want the potential for extra payouts in baccarat, then this game is a good option. If you just want to play a standard game of baccarat - then you may want to avoid a 20% additional fee on all bets. Lightning Baccarat is currently in soft launch but will release to all Evolution Casino sites soon.
